    There were some old threads, but time passes and probably market have changed.
    I wonder if anyone have knowledge about stores, which sells Japanese pressings of 60s and 70s rock (classic, prog, kraut and even southern) and may be even some 80s stuff )).
    Already have some money allocated ))

    You don't wanna know what Shibuya-Ku sold in 1990 for $10 or under.

    I came back from Tokyo with so many Beatles, Floyd, Kiss etc. $10 or under I could barely lift the luggage.I'd bring over bad soul albums to trade I'd get for $1 and get $7 in trade. Everybody's a Yahho/eBay/Didcogs dealers there now. Most of the early 90's stores are gone.

    I am fine with paying discogs prices as long as I can see actual record, as grading as you know subjective and sending back to Japan record you do not like often makes no sense, as it is very pricey.

    The amount of graded poorly Japan sold albums continues to climb.....it was rarely a factor years back. Too many rookie sellers over there now. They fight to get the common product now.
